Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

Re: Catamaran Shopping: Move Cat from East to West Coast?

Since I bought my boat elsewhere and shipped it. I disagree. I live full time on my boat. I knew what I wanted, and I looked for 2 years on the west coast of the US and couldn't find a boat that...

Re: Catamaran Shopping: Move Cat from East to West Coast?

Zzmeyer, don't be afraid to negotiate with the shippers and play one against another. That's what I did and managed to get the cost down significantly. I shipped my catamaran from Florida to...

Re: Mexico TIP and Boat in an LLC with new owners

I don't know about the first owner's name still being on the TIP, but I had the same situation (LLC owning the boat). When checking in to Mexico and getting my TIP I needed a letter from the LLC...

Re: Rank the different boat brands

I, also, haven't read the whole thread since it's wandered so far off topic. My advice is to just start looking at boats. You'll see the difference in how they are made and most importantly how they...

Re: Buyers broker recommendations?

I think you got some good recommendations for a broker. But I will just chime in that a good buyer's broker is worth their weight in gold. I had one when I bought my catamaran and she was wonderful....

Re: 31-35ft sailboat located in Mexico/Sea of Cortez under $14k

Check out San Carlos Yacht Sales. There are a lot of monohulls for sale in San Carlos. In my experience they sell for 1/2-1/3 of the price listed. Good Luck! This time last year, I saw quite a few...

Re: House sold waiting for closing time to buy?

I was in the same position that you are. I was looking at boats when my house was listed and if I had found the right one, I would have put in an offer contingent on my house successfully closing. As...

Re: Smelly Boat

Re: Converting a berth

I agree, why have that extra berth if you don't need it, and if you need more storage. It's your boat you can do anything you like with it. I will likely be doing the same. Isn't this a lovely thing?

Re: Our Dinghy "Flo" Saved the Mothership Today!

Personally, I don't think risking my life in that situation would be worth it. Damage to boats can be repaired.

I'm really glad no one was hurt.

Re: Dufour Atoll 43

One thing that shows up for me on this boat, is no ventilation in the bunks. When it's hot, you have to have ventilation to sleep.

Re: Interior Help

If it was me, I would take it off. Even knowing that it has the potential to be a PITA. Only you can tell if it's holding enough mold spores to bother you. Some people have been able to scrape off...

Re: Interior Help

I can understand not wanting to take off what is there. I gather it can be hard and a terrible job.

I think the beadboard, painted will be nice. I have been enamored of sky blue ceilings lately.

Re: Interior Help

I know there has been some previous discussion about getting liners and 'mouse fur' off of boats. You seem to be good at finding those, Steady Hand.

Kim, it's not as easy as you might think. Some...

Re: Catalina 30 & My first boaters sin...

Can you sell your current boat reasonably fast? Then why not trade up? There's no law to say that you can't!!
